AAU Nationals & Super Showcase: Player Capsules


Coverage of both the AAU Super Showcase and AAU National Championship from Orlando, FL.  Check back each day for new player scouting reports.

AAU 17U Super Showcase

JT Thompson 6-6 Charlotte Royals 2008

Thompson scored 18 points in an outstanding semifinal performance against the SYF Players. He is a well built forward that uses his strength to finish close to the basket. If he gets the ball down low, his first reaction is to dunk, and if he draws contact he can switch (mid air) to a lay in. Thompson loves to use the glass within 10 feet, and hit a high percentage of his short range shots. Although not nearly as effective on the perimeter, he had one spin move that split SYF’s Robbie Hummel and Scott Martin and resulted in a dunk. He is a good athlete and stays in front of his man on defense, and has the athleticism to block some tough shots. Legit High Major prospect and a borderline top 50 player in the class of 2008.

Greg Hill 6-2 SYF Players 2007

Hill is the unsung hero on the Super Showcase champion SYF Players. He consistently puts up big numbers, and always gives his all. He is strong and uses his body to scrap for rebounds and loose balls. In the semifinal game against the Charlotte Royals, he finished with 16 points, including 3 back-to-back trifectas to give his team the momentum they needed to win the game. Hill says he’s going to prep school this year at Bridgeton in Maine. Solid Mid-Major prospect.

E’Twaun Moore 6-3 SYF Players 2007 (#30

Moore was one of the top 5 players at the NIKE All-America Camp earlier this month, and was a big reason that SYF made it to the championship of Peach Jam just two weeks ago, so it came as no surprise that he led his team to a championship here at the Super Showcase in Orlando, FL. He has been running the point and showed that he is a great leader on top of smooth scorer. His ball handling and passing have improved a lot recently, and his midrange game and outside shot still rank among the best in prep hoops. Future All-Conference player at Purdue.

Scott Martin 6-8 SYF Players 2007

If you want to know what kind of player Martin is, just check out this sequence, “made an outstanding block, and immediately ran the length of the court, received a pass on the baseline, 15 feet from the goal, and nailed a jumper with 2 defenders closing in”. Not only does he block shots, run the court well and hit midrange jumpers, but he is very tough down low where he is a strong finisher. This summer, his stock has risen tremendously. Just one more player that is going make Purdue a powerhouse 2 seasons from now.

Sean Mosley 6-4 Team Melo 2008

Mosley is a well built guard that is strong enough to be tough down low at this level. He is a heady player that lets the game come to him and does a good job of selecting his shots. He scored 24 points in a semifinal game against All Ohio and had 19 in the championship against SYF. High Major prospect and top 100 player in the class of 2008.

AAU 17U National Championship

Nayal "Mac" Koshwal 6-8 Chicago Ferrari 2007 (#75

Koshwal was the top player on opening day of the AAU National Championships. In a game against Adidas Pittsburg Red, he dominated down low with 25 points, and although the tournament doesn’t keep stats other than points, he had well over 10 boards, and a number of blocked shots. Some kids rely on the backboard to finish shots close to the basket, but Koshwal is very effective just rising above the defenders and laying the ball in. He has added a lot to his game since we saw him last year in the semifinals and championship of this event. He can now play facing the basket, and he beat his man off the dribble on a few occasions. On the defensive end, he was an intimidating shot blocker, and a force on the boards. He also had multiple offensive rebounds that he turned into points. Koshwal said that he has 6 schools on his list right now: Depaul, Oklahoma St., Georgetown, Kansas, Miami, and Tennessee.

Chris Warren 5-11 Team Champion Orlando Wildcats 2007

Warren is a big-time sleeper. In a game today, against the Maryland Sure Shots, he scored 28 points, including a perfect 8-8 from the line and had 10+ assists. He first caught our eye when he drove baseline past a pair of defenders, and hit an acrobatic reverse layup in traffic. From outside he was money, hitting multiple 3-pointers, and forcing the defense to play out on him. That didn’t work either. He was easily beating his man off the dribble and penetrating the lane, where he made nice drop passes. He is fast baseline to baseline and excels in transition. Pure point guard that is a dangerous scorer as well. Warren is getting a lot of attention from Mid Majors right now, and says he has scholarship offers from UCF, FAU, FSU, ODU, VCU, FAMU, and James Madison.
